Sexy Hair Styles with Carol Cardinale

I have to do give one of my good friends, Carol Cardinale a huge shoutout. I first met her because she became my new hair stylist. After a few visits, we realized we had a lot in common and liked to laugh a lot, and just have a nice time. We shared some experiences which have helped me through any negative times. She is also fun as hell.

I idid this video to give a nice and to her shoutout to her. Enjoy!:

Breaking the Rules of Style: Pinup/Rockabilly

I just finished filming my latest video because I’ve had girls reach out to me recently saying that they are getting into the Rockabilly/Pinup style but are feeling discouraged and not confident because they feel that they aren’t styling themselves the right way or other people are telling them that they’re not dressing or doing their makeup the correct way and that they don’t look like how a Pinup Girl should look. I THINK THAT IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE AND UNACCEPTABLE because the Pinup and Rockabilly Community is such a positive one and being a Pinup is all about having confidence and feeling beautiful and no one should ever put people down or tell them that they aren’t looking the right way. 

 In this video, I definitely give my opinions on the situation and clear up a few things and misconceptions. Enjoy and subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already.

 

DISCLAIMER:  In this video, I’m talking about a very small group of individuals that take this lifestyle to seriously that are bringing down girls who are new to this lifestyle. I’m not talking about the majority of the pinup/rockabilly community. I love everyone in the pinup/rockabilly community!

SugarPill Cosmetics “High Tea” Liquid Lip Bundle

HighTea_bundle_grande   I bought the Little Twin Star Collection but didn’t really review it here mainly because I used the entire collection in my last photoshoot and have been tweeting with the fabulous people at Sugarpill on how much I loved that collection. Yesterday I received my Sugarpill “High Tea,” Liquid Lipstick collection and I’m already in love. Every color is something that I would wear on a daily basis and of course the liquid lip formula is fantastic. Sugarpill and Jeffree Star Cosmetics are my two favorite brands that have the best liquid lip formulas.

Here is my NEW YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOUT MY LOVE FOR SUGARPILL COSMETICS! Also are the beautiful swatches and names of the gorgeous “High Tea” colors. I’m wearing “CLINK” in my pictures here! Thank you Sugarpill Cosmetics for another fabulous product and for being my favorite makeup brand.

RuPaul’s Drag Con, Los Angeles 2018

   IMG_5983

   Hello there! I’m here to talk about my experience at RuPaul’s Drag Con, 2018.  There’s so much I saw and experienced there that I can’t list every person I saw and met here otherwise it would be a really long post, but here are some of the highlights. I’ve always wanted to attend this convention before and this year I was finally able to go. I’ll start by saying the whole experience of drag con was so magical and positive. There wasn’t any negativity anywhere. The convention this year was the biggest turn out that they’e ever had. There was so much positive energy from the moment we got there before even entering the actual convention. I knew it was going to be a fun day.

When the convention started, I immediately ran to my favorite drag queen’s stage, Miss Alyssa Edwards. If you read my past posts on drag queens, you already know that she’s my favorite. She looked so beautiful and glamorous in all gold. When I met her, the first thing I said to her is that she’s inspired me with new dance ideas since Alyssa is wonderfully talented dance teacher and choreographer. She was so sweet to me. After meeting her, I was asked to walk the runway near her in my mermaid skater dress that I put together. I definitely had fun doing my “shantay on the runway.” Besides the picture below, here’s the vid my husband took of me on the runway. He recorded me meeting her too which is very cool. She was such a darling.

   One of the funnest things at drag con is seeing what everyone’s wearing, both drag queens and people attending the convention.  My hubby and I had fun snapping photos of the coolest looks we saw there. There were also random props and backdrops, such as this huge horse specifically there to take pictures with which was fun.

   The next person I met was the famous Michelle Visage. If you don’t know who she is, (how could you not?) she is RuPaul’s long time best friend as well as one of the main judges on Drag Race. As a judge she can be intimidating, but when you meet her outside of the show, she is such a sweet woman. The fact that she was walking around in furry slippers without caring and still looked stunning is so fucking cool. She said I looked like an iridescent mermaid which I took as a huge compliment. I actually got a piece of jewelry from her that she actually wore on the show. She had a couple pieces to choose from and I chose this gorgeous black diamond rose ring. I’m going to post a picture in my next article on DragCon merchandise. Thank you Michelle for my new jewelry and being so wonderful.

One of the queens that I definitely wanted to meet was the famous Detox. My husband thinks she is so funny on the show so I was looking forward to telling Detox that she was my husband’s favorite drag queen. She looked so correct at her booth. She was donned in a judge’s robe with her courtroom back drop and her neon judge’s wig. It was a perfect setup. Detox is also such a cool and sweet queen as well as extremely creative and talented.

   During the day, there was only one nagging issue I had. The only critique I have about Drag Con is that the booth numbers and names were really small to read. Also I didn’t get to do actual meet and greets with some of them because the VIP lines and the regular lines weren’t clear and would take up to 3 hours. Also the fabulous James St, James, the original club kid, who came up to me to hug and take a picture with me specifically said to not wait for three hours to meet someone, so I definitely listened to him. Fortunately I got to quickly meet and hug some of my favorite people there when they took a break from their meet and greets, such as Ben Dela Creme which you all know is one of my all-time favorite drag queens, Trixie Mattel who I love, Bianca Del Rio, which is also one of my top favorites, and Jeffree Star who I had been wanting to see for awhile because I wasn’t able to attend his last grand opening. It was really cool to be able to say hi to them and without waiting for a long time in a crazy long line..

It was really fun seeing the entire cast from season 10 of RuPaul’s drag race, which is airing right now every Thursday night. I wish I had photos of every person I met to show but what can you do? At least I got to see and meet them. 

   The last queen I met before the convention ended was the famous Cher Impersonator and All Stars 1 winner, Chad Michaels. I almost can’t even describe how amazing she is. First of all, she doesn’t believe in charging a minimum amount to spend to get a photo and autograph. She is strictly there for the fans. That alone shows how extremely professional and classy, Chad is. Another thing that I loved is that after taking a few photos and signing an autograph, she didn’t immediately push me to the side or rush me. We chatted with her for awhile and talked about the business side of drag which was very fascinating. Also she looked gorgeous and classy in her blouse and pants. When saying goodbye to Chad, while giving each other hugs and kisses, she actually turned to my husband, and thanked him for bringing me, which actually made me teary eyed because it was such a sweet thing to say, and it felt very genuine. That was the perfect ending to my time at Drag Con.

   I’m so happy I finally got to go, and can’t wait until next year. I’ll probably post more photos from the convention later this week. Thank you so much for reading about my time and love for drag queens.
